“So, should we just whip it out, or …” — “Heathers” (1989)

Here are some amazing WIPs: Go check out Dani’s WIPs, and of course some great SP gifts; Zonda has some great socks and a sweater; Cathy has a few things in the works as well as some gorgeous hand dyed yarn! She also puts my 3 boys to shame — she has 5 boys! Melinda has some socks and some really detailed, gorgeous sweaters!; Shannon doesn’t disappoint – she is working on one WIP right now. She says she only does one at once, but someday I’ll catch her, since I’ve seen a couple of things in progress on her in progress list at the same time 😉 …; Agnes has a pretty workable group, and a plan to finish them all. I’m impressed!; Erica has only three — if only I could be that disciplined!; Chacha, in one of my favorite towns (I got two of my tattoos there!), has three great projects to finish.; Pieknits has some great green knitting. Green is really attractive to me too these days.; Lu has quite an array — I especially like her Elfine socks and her Cherry Tree Hill design submission. That yarn is much more gorgeous in person than even it looks on the computer!; Jenn has a couple of really nice sweaters – I wish I were that far along with mine!; Stephaneer put hers up — some gorgeous socks and sweaters I wish I were brave enough to try.; Jennifer has a couple — some great socks, Clapotis, a baby blanket and one more I’m blanking on. You all are my inspiration to pare down my “collection”.; Ariel has some great WIPs, including some socks, Tubey (which I really want to make!), and a great felted bag!; Kristi (go check out her sock patterns too — I love them!) has a nice collection too, including her Siren Socks that I’m following avidly; KnitNana has some gorgeous shawls to work on.; Liz has some great WIPs, some older than my kids!; Ooops, don’t want to forget Blackcrow, who got caught in the act 😉 ; Jenny has a bigger list than me, I think, but I have to officially count mine now …; Amy’s got hers up — there is quite a list but they’re all gorgeous!

Here are mine. I only have one more I want to add — the one I’m going to frog just for you guys and send it to the lucky winner:

This is the project that is due first — my Sockapaloooza socks. My Sockpal has size 11 feet (I have size 8 feet) so it’s a bit daunting, but at least I have a sock model, my friend Christine who also has size 11 feet. I’ve been distracted by my Fixation socks this week, so I haven’t gotten anything done on it for awhile.

Here’s the project that I hope to get done by Mother’s Day, Sitcom Chic for my MIL. Of course I just realized she’ll be in Italy on Mother’s Day so I guess that gives me a couple of extra weeks:

My Blackberry should take no time at all, but I never get to it. Here is sleeve #1, I already finished the front and back:

This is my 7 x 7 is sweater – the body is done, I just need to seam it up and pick up and knit the neckline and bottom ribbing:

I also started this new MicroSpun sweater, and then the Olympics came and I got busy, so I only finished the sleeve:

My Raglan Tansy Tee from Cast On has been relegated to the back forever. And it is just straight stockinette at this point:

My Peaks N Valleys socks from Knit Socks! haven’t gone anywhere, except to give up their size 0 dpns and end up with size 0 circs:

The same with my Broadripples:

And here are the losers:

Look how far I got on Annie Modesitt’s Silk Corset before I realized it was too small:

I can’t bear to frog it, but I know it will probably never fit me (my youngest is 18 mos. and I’m still nowhere near losing the pregnancy weight).

When I realized it didn’t fit, I started a new corset in Schachenmayer Micro, then I lost the needle and stitchmarkers. This is the first to go:

to this:

This is the project that was supposed to take a couple of hours, Bubby from Knitty.com, only it cost me some dpns and it’s now in the trash:

Here’s my second project today that I’m finally frogging, my minisweater #2 (I never finished #1 either) in Rowan DK Marl. I didn’t have enough yarn or interest in the project.

This is the second project I can’t bear to frog, my A Good Bias from IK. Maybe when I need the KnitPicks Shine I’ll be able to do it:

    Sheesh. Forgot to include the link, so here’s another try at the comment…

    I post about all my WIPs regularly, but I do like to do a full summary of the roster now and then, and you gave me a good excuse to do that today. Here’s the link…

    I’ve posted my WIPs that I can remember anyhow!!!! I suspect I have a few more hidden but DH was asleep(night shift) I couldn’t access them without waking him, shhhhh…
    Looking at yours I reckon its easier to have heaps of little WIP in progress as the big ones take up space and stand out!

    Your WIP list isn'[t *that* bad! 🙂 I can’t even find some of my WIPs.

    And I totally feel you about the silk corset!

    E – I’m lagging, but it will totally happen as I have started frogging my WIP’s and documenting the tragedy of it all!! Photos up tomorrow.
